Shaquille O'Neal Buys Sympathetic Fan a New Laptop

It turns out a little kindness really does go a long way... Just ask the Georgia man who ran into NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal last week at Best Buy.

The man, identified only as Martin, had read that O'Neal was having a tough time after the October death of his sister, Ayesha Harrison-Jex, and then his friend, Kobe Bryant, last month. So when he saw Shaq, Martin decided to approach him and offer his sympathy.

"We gave our condolences for his sister and Kobe," Martin wrote on Facebook.

Martin then resumed shopping for a new laptop... "We walked off, then Shaq comes to us and says, 'I like y'all, so get the nicest one in here and I'll pay for it,'" he wrote. And that's exactly what he did.
